It was made with an RPOC. Hence, it's a C.R.A.P. circle. :boogie:

Added Sean's VW damper modification, can't recommend this enough. It's transformed the handling on my '96 Tourist.

:P Thanks Don, married a wonderful woman with a great sense of humor yesterday, the 29th! She picked the date figuring that every four years, after saving for four years, we will travel, really travel, somewhere we haven't been before. It isn't the first marriage for either of us so a good sense of humor is a plus. No honeymoon right away but we are going Uraling for 7-9 days this summer beginning the July 4th weekend in its place.

A swiss couple used to tell:
"To marry is the desperate attempt to solve troubles that wouldn't exist without marriage"

They told so when they lived together 28 years in "wild marriage", They kept together until he passed by 2 years ago...52 years.
"That way You have to gain your partner each day new!"
Said so by Monika + Herbert.

May your marriage bound and work out perfectly.

I found a large parking lot and practiced weaving in and out of some cones. Flew the chair for the first time. I must admit,it was a little disconcerting.
